As the sun pops her hat on and comes out to play, we start to dream about lighter, brighter, and more healthy meals for our families than the comfort food we often crave in the winter. If you’re feeling a bit stuck for warm weather recipes, check out our favourite three summer family meals.
Delicious, colourful, and super fun to eat, tacos are the perfect summer treat. This yummy recipe uses chicken breasts, spices, herbs, avocado, lime juice, and 0% Greek yoghurt to pack in the flavour while staying extra healthy. Plus they’re easy to make; all you have to do is marinate and grill the chicken, whip up a salsa and guacamole, and pick up some taco shells from your local supermarket. You can even grill the chicken on the BBQ on warm days; tacos are portable after all, great for al fresco dining! For added fun, lay all the ingredients out on the table and let your little ones construct their own.
Whether your family is vegetarian or you just want to make the most of the summer veg on offer, this delicious chilli recipe is a healthy meat-free take on a family classic. It’s even made with cocoa and peanut butter – a fact that’s bound to get the kids interested! A perfect one-pan dish, this recipe will save you a bunch of washing up and can be served with rice or jacket potatoes if you want to keep it gluten-free.
Burgers are such a kid-friendly summer staple but they’re not always the healthiest option for little tummies. For a much healthier option, try these yummy salmon burgers instead. Packed with deliciously fresh Thai flavours that are perfect for summer, these burgers can be served in a traditional bun or with rice.
